Further information

Randstad Education is the UK Market Leader and our specialist team have been helping teachers and support staff to find temporary and permanent education jobs for nearly 20years.

We have an unrivalled reputation within Primary schools in the London Boroughs, and work with over 2,500 schools each week to find the right match for your skills.

We take great pride in the extremely high service levels that we provide to both our schools and our candidates. Our service is honest and efficient and, in addition to our recruitment solution, we offer the opportunity for additional training and development for our candidates. You will also receive personalised career support from the team.

Due to our long running success as the official School Supply service for both Lambeth and Lewisham Borough Councils, we currently need more teachers to help us meet the increasing demands of schools in Southwark who have been recommended to us by their neighbouring boroughs.

The School: We are currently looking for a Level3 Teaching Assistant to work in small group settings throughout KS1 and KS2, boosting G&T pupils as well as providing additional support for low ability pupils on behalf of a community primary school in Southwark. The school has a strong nurturing environment, and believe that building pupils confidence and self esteem is the key to their success. They also provide a wide range of extra curricular activities such sports, music and other opportunities to allow pupils to be introduced to new experiences, and show that everyone has the ability to succeed at something. They take "Every Child Matters" to heart, treating each pupil as an individual in an effort to ensure each one has an aspiration they can aspire to, and they as a school can do all they can to help children achieve it.

The Children: Southwark is a highly diverse area, with many schools having pupils from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. This can lead to a range of ability levels, as well as EAL needs, however the schools have a strong support network of specialist TAs and other resources to assist the more severe needs. The pupils can display challenging behaviour due to their varying home lives, so the ideal teaching assistants will be those with strong personalities who have creative and practical methods of classroom management and can deliver inclusive lessons, which make children eager to learn and become more involved in their own learning journeys.

The Job:We are looking for Level3 Teaching Assistants for this Long Term assignment who can:

  • Adapt to work in KS1 and KS2.
  • Commit to the position on an ongoing basis.
  • Have relevant up to date experience in UK schools.
  • Preferably have knowledge of Phonics Assessments and KS1/KS2 SATs, but this is not essential.
  • Ensure effective classroom management in line with schools' behaviour policies.
  • Treat every assignment as if it is a permanent role, injecting a sense of purpose into the classroom ad helping the schools continue to have a positive impact on pupils' lives to the best of your ability.
  • Provide references to cover the last 12months, as well as be willing to complete a CRB/DBS check alongside other safeguarding checks and requirements.

In reward for our teachers' hard work and commitment we provide competitive rates of pay with no hidden deductions, access to Randstad Education's online CPD portfolio, bespoke CPD courses ran by professionals (often free of charge), long term and permanent job opportunities locally as well as across the UK and internationally, a dedicated consultant with a 24/7 on call facility and a honest and trustworthy approach that matches you to the right school.
